Scouters of Eagle Trail and Bayshore Districts,
We would like to invite you to a Town Hall on March 31st at the Asbury United Methodist Church (5354 Space Center Blvd, Pasadena, TX) at the NW corner of Space Center and Genoa-Red Bluff) to learn about the activities that are starting to commence regarding the proposed merger between our two districts.
A cracker barrel is planned for 7:00 pm, and the program, expected to last about an hour, will begin around 7:30 pm. Program speakers will include the District Chairs Rod McCrary and Gary Hinners, the District Commissioners Robert Mendoza and Kent Hodson, and our staff professionals Sidney Castillo and Stacie Collins.
We encourage your attendance so that you not only hear about the upcoming plans, but also to give you a chance to ask questions and provide input. This is also an excellent opportunity for Scouters in our districts to get acquainted with each other.
This is the start of a fairly rare event in Scouting - - We hope you can be part of this experience from the very beginning.
Yours in Scouting,

Eagle Trail and Bayshore District Twilight Camp
June 8-12 from 4:30 - 9:00 pm at Lomax Arena (1508 1/2 Lomax Rd La Porte, TX 77571)
Twilight Camp is a council camp hosted by districts for Scouts entering 1st – 5th grade. Scouts earn rank advancements, learn new skills, play sports and games, make crafts, shoot BB guns and archery, but most of all have fun. Scouts can attend any district’s camp that best suits their schedule. Participants receive a t-shirt and patch.
The cost if $60 for Cub Scouts. Register by May 1, 2015 and get $5 off. A late fee is added after May 17, 2015. Lots of volunteers are needed to make camp a success, so please consider volunteering. Adult volunteers can also register their non-Scouting children ages 3-5 (potty trained) or girls ages 6-13. Boy Scouts and girls ages 14-17 can volunteer.
At camp, Cub Scouts will salute those heroes who help keep us safe and secure each and every day. Can only adults be heroes? Heroes are often ordinary kids who did something out of the ordinary! Sometimes a hero is obvious, the policeman who risks his life to protect us from violence or the fireman who pulls people out of burning buildings. Some people around us seem like regular people, but they are heroes because they used to be soldiers in the military and served our country to keep us free. Heroes are all around us. You never know when or where emergencies will arise. Scouting teaches us how to handle these situations. We don’t expect to get hurt, and don’t expect to need first aid, but we are prepared just in case. Do Your Best! One person can make a difference. One person who helps can change someone’s world. Maybe one day the hero will be you or your Cub Scout.
The State of Texas requires that every camp volunteer attend orientation training and have current classroom Youth Protection Training (YPT) certification (expires after 6/12/13. Both trainings will be offered:
- Thursday, May 21, 2015 at 7:00 pm at University Baptist Church Chapel (use entrance off of Middlebrook)
